"He has lost his mental balance due to fear of defeat in Lok Sabha elections. Such type of person in his family can term his grandson and granddaughter as Mr and Mrs in place of brothers and sisters," the BSP chief told reporters here.

"I suggest his family members to admit him to a mental asylum in Agra for treatment," she said.

Mayawati's comments came in reaction to Mulayam's remarks against her at a rally in Faizabad district on Wednesday.

"Should I call her Mayawati Miss, Mrs or sister," Yadav had said at the rally.
Reacting sharply, Mayawati said his remarks could incite caste riots in the state.

The BSP president also asked the Election Commission to initiate action against him and ban him from campaigning.

"Party cadres are very angry due to his statement and have been planning protests all over the state that can create a law and order problem. But, I personally told them not to follow the ways of the Samajwadi Party as there is a wave in favour of the BSP," Mayawati said.
Attacking Mulayam, she said he had recently made some remarks in favour of rapists and his "anti-women" comments were routine.

"We all know how much honour he has given to his first wife. This is an open secret. The Election Commission should take cognisance of his statement and initiate strict action against him and ban him from campaigning," Mayawati said.

She alleged that the Samajwadi Party supremo, apprehending defeat in the Lok Sabha polls, was resorting to hooliganism and pressurizing officers and employees to work in favour of his party.
Mulayam was trying to vitiate the atmosphere in the state, Mayawati said.
